Good morning Metis class. Today it is World Book Day 2021! Although Studley Green are choosing to celebrate World Book Day in the summer term when everyone is back we are still going to be having an exciting day focusing most of our learning around the book 'The Rainbow fish'. Join Miss Broadhead at 9.30 for a zoom call where she will be reading The rainbow fish and explaining the days learning.
Say the sounds and read the first part of the story (which we read yesterday) and the middle part. Are you more fluent at reading it today than yesterday?
Today most of our learning is around the book 'The rainbow fish'. Listen to the story being read here below and have a go at answering the questions afterwards.
What words did the fish use to describe the rainbow fish?
Which fish asked rainbow fish for a shiny scale?
How did rainbow fish feel about giving a shiny scale away?
How did rainbow fish make friends in the end?
Look at this picture of the rainbow fish. What words can you use to describe him?
Think about his personality - is he kind, selfish, spiteful? How could you describe his personality at the end of the story?
Task: Today we are going to draw a big picture of the rainbow fish and write adjectives that we would use to describe him as his scales. Words such as 'shiny' 'beautiful' 'sparkly'. Take a look at an example below:
In your packs you will find a sheet with lots of spellings on. Please can you read as many spellings out loud as you can.
Today I would like you to practice these spellings:

Follow the link below to our handwriting scheme - This week we will be look at our lower case cursive letters. By now we should all be forming our lowercase letters correctly and should be able to write the whole alphabet from a-z. Have a go at writing the lowercase alphabet in your books.
If you still need a bit of help with some letters- take a look below:
Go onto numbots for 15 minutes.

Can you still?
Yesterday we looked at the value of some notes. Remind yourself of yesterdays lesson by taking a look at the 'let's learn' below. Then complete the worksheet.
(Grown ups your child might need support reading the writing but during guided practice they should complete this as independently as possible.)

In science we have been learning about materials. The rainbow fish has lots of shiny scales which is why he is so beautiful in the beginning of the story and later on he shares these shiny scales. Your science task for today is to go on a hunt around your house/garden/daily walk and find shiny objects.
Once you have found your shiny objects make a list of what you have found and what material it is made from.
As we have been looking at Rainbow fish today we are going to finish our learning with some art. Use the template below (or draw your own). To create a beautiful rainbow fish picture. You can use your watercolour paints that were given out last term. You could finger paint the rainbow fish. You can colour the rainbow fish in or you can make a collage of the rainbow fish - it is up to you with what supplies you have at home.
